BGF is on the lookout for ambitious Scottish businesses with bold growth plans. Since 2012 we have provided more than £350m in funding for businesses across Scotland. Our evergreen balance sheet enables us to take a long-term view when backing businesses, so there are no artificial timelines or deadlines. And as a minority investor, we only ever take stakes of between 10-40% in the business we back.

From high tech lasers in Glasgow to family housebuilders in Fife, we have invested in businesses across the Central Belt and the South of Scotland in a range of different sectors and stages, but all with one common factor – great management teams. Whether you are looking to enter new markets or geographies, make a game-changing acquisition, or launch new products or technologies, we can help. It’s investment, just as it should be.

Scotland’s strength is in its community. We should all be about connecting people and asking what we can do to serve our fellow entrepreneurs."
